The attorneys at d’Oliveira & Associates recently obtained a significant award for a Massachusetts client whose case was brought before the Social Security Administration (Attleboro, MA District Court, Case Number: AT-12607). The client (whose name is withheld for confidentiality purposes) was laid off from her more recent job because her suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, according to the complaint, and after working for years in assisted living establishments while her condition worsened, after finally becoming unable to work, the client applied for, but was denied any Social Security Benefits (Attleboro, MA District Court, Case Number: AT-12607).
Since seeking the assistance of experienced Social Security Disability attorneys, the client has since received over $25,000 in retroactive benefits and will not receive an additional $1,300 per month for the rest of her life (Attleboro, MA District Court, Case Number: AT-12607). Although she had previously been denied benefits, after contacting the law offices of d’Oliveira & Associates, Attorney Cara Gallucci was able to win her case and did not charge her a fee until she had received her back due benefits.
Attorney Paul d’Oliveira stated that “Attorney Gallucci and her staff did an excellent job winning this case and $25,000 is one of the largest amounts of back due benefits this firm has ever gotten for a social security disability client. I am seeing her win more and more cases every month and she is without a doubt, in my opinion, a very seasoned disability lawyer.”
